Vodafone roaming services, your global partner in wholesale roaming

Helping your travellers, applications and things to roam the world

We manage the global roaming connectivity for Vodafone and other businesses. We ensure over 750 million mobile customers and devices can confidently connect in virtually every country of the world. More than 90 mobile operators and other businesses, including some of the world's top players,use our roaming services.

We have a mission: We connect away from home

We strive to excel in roaming to grow value for our customers and for Vodafone.

In the early days of roaming, each Vodafone market established and maintained its own bilateral relationships with its roaming partners. In 2005, we started overcoming Vodafone’s fragmented trading position by centrally coordinating discount deals. In 2009, Vodafone Roaming Services was launched in Luxembourg, uniting Vodafone’s local wholesale roaming capabilities into a global, end-to-end business unit.
